Style The Bump with … BAE the Label

I was really disappointed with the fit and quality of the H&M maternity jeans. Fact is that when I am pregnant I put on weight on my bum and thighs. I get big so I need pants that can accommodate my new shape, keep me comfortable but also look more dressed than a regular legging.…
